    I recently purchased a AV in 338 WM with a black synthetic stock. I assume it is one of the fiberglass stocks from McMillian. Very nice stainless rifle. Black recoil pad with a spacer. The black pad is.....like a rock.

    From what I have read, would the pad be glued to the spacer? Apply a little heat and cut off spacer? I am comfortable grinding a new pad, it just need to remove the old first


    Thanks for the feedback

    I would ask McMillian how they installed it & if they can recommend best way to remove.

    Please share what they tell you, we will appreciate the increase in our k owledge.

    I have two AV Hunter McMillan stocks myself. One for a .338 I recently purchased that I haven't gotten around to shooting yet. I need to rectify that soon. (As well as try out my 22 PPC.) Weather has finally turned nice.
